Twice baked potatoes with garlic & chives

If you refrigerate the potatoes to bake later, then make sure you allow enough time to fully heat the potatoes.

Also if you noticed I started out with 3 potatoes, but only have 5 halves here, that is because I use the potato from the 6th.halve and use the other skin in scrambled eggs or something like that.
